The Healing Touch: The Word of God says “They overcame by the word of their testimony.” Have you experienced a miraculous physical healing or experienced a miracle breakthrough of ANY KIND? Tell us about it. Someone can be edified and encouraged by your testimony. Tell us what the Lord did for you. We will publish your testimony (anonymously, of course) in Bethel’s “Healing Touch” newsletter. Give God the glory and testify about the healing touch of Jesus, the miracle-working touch of Jesus, and the touch of the Christ that provides. Pick up a Testimony Submission form, complete it and drop it in the Healing Touch box in the Main Sanctuary’s lobby. Bethel’s Telephone Prayer Line Ministry NEEDS YOU!
